Friends of the Marin County Free Library

We are a nonprofit 501(c)3 group of volunteers dedicated to making our library system and its programs the best they can be. Anyone who enjoys the pleasure of a good book or the myriad of benefits and services of the library should be a friend. Our non-profit tax ID is 23-7098721.

Book Place is open 10 am to 2 pm Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday!

Donations accepted Tuesday and Saturday only

Our August specials are designed to educate and entertain… There are limited sports on TV, so we offer the Sports section at 50% off regular price - many sports to choose from; yes, it’s little consolation, but…

If it’s self-improvement you’re after, we take 50% off our Self-Help section, or expand your brain with Science and Environmental Issues, also 50% off.

You may visit us indoors or at curbside, whichever is more comfortable for you. We’ll still take book requests via our email,, or via a phone message, 415-209-0212 (speak slowly, clearly, and have both title and author). We'll let you know if we have the book(s), and the total charges. We'd prefer a personal check, 


We’re also accepting book/material donations at our sorting room in the back parking lot (enter off 7th Street).  We’re accepting donations on Tuesdays and Saturdays ONLY, since we must quarantine the donations before handling. Stay in your car, and volunteers will take a look at your donations before accepting. We strongly encourage you to review our donation guidelines before packing up and coming over. Space is limited. A phone call beforehand to check on available space would be ideal; we know you've been holding these things for awhile and we hate to disappoint!


We've taken all precautions to make your experience safe and enjoyable. You must wear a mask to enter, and we’ll keep everything safe with continual cleaning and disinfecting.

Come by to see us!
